Evangelistic Calvinism: Why the Doctrines of Grace are Good News (Banner Booklet)
This booklet addresses a misunderstanding widely held among present-day Christians. "Calvinism," according to the author, has received a bad press and has been unjustly criticized on the grounds that its teachings undermine zeal for Christian mission and evangelism. Taking each of the so-called "five points of Calvinism" in turn, John Benton convincingly shows how the "doctrines of grace" are in fact five beautiful diamonds from which the glories of Jesus wonderfully shine to attract those who are lost in sin. He demonstrates how "they address the sinner’s deepest fears in the most heart-warming way imaginable" and comes to the conclusion that ‘rather than being truths of which we are to be wary, they are in fact an integral part of the gospel to be proclaimed.
